Karen Hallion Introduces Hermione To The 10th Doctor In The Most Wonderful Way Possible

On sale today for just $11 on TeeFury.com, this magical design by Karen Hallion bringing together two of our favorite fandom characters. “The episode ‘The Girl in the Fireplace’ might be my all time favorite,” wrote Hallion. “And I am a big Potterhead, so it seemed an interesting idea to replace the woman that the Doctor meets in the fireplace, Madame de Pompadour—a strong female character—with another strong female character. By doing so, I wanted to create a new story with a commentary of my vision for these characters and illustrate a natural way in their stories for them to interact that would alter their outcomes in a meaningful manner.” This particular image, ”The Witch in the Fireplace,” is for sale as a t-shirt on TeeFury for today only but if you miss out, you may be able to find it in her RedBubble store later.
